Price Chopper Supermarkets is issuing an emergency recall for multiple units of streusel-topped fruit pies sold in several retailers across the nation.
According to several news sources, these particular food products have egg as one of its ingredients although it’s not stated in the label. Since egg consumption could pose a serious risk to individuals who are highly allergic, consumers are advised they should return all recalled units to the retailer of purchase for a full refund.
The Food and Drug administration has revealed that all apple, cherry, blueberry and peach streusel pies could lead to serious and sometimes ever life-threatening allergic reactions in individuals with a high intolerance to eggs.
As a San Diego personal injury lawyer, I sincerely hope Price Chopper is now contacting all consumers who have purchased these items in the past weeks to ensure they will refrain from consuming these recalled pies.
